Sharing a Gazebo in the Botanical Gardens, Sheffield
There's a first time for everything. Art in the Gardens is my favourite show. Wonderful setting, great day out, and now I get to exhibit with Xenmint Art Photography, in our own gazebo. Sounds like a date in heaven!
Some paintings were accepted into the Open Art Exhibition in the main tent:
There are different paintings on my stall, along with prints, cards and craft items. Of course, there has to be a dragon:
I'll have room to display some images in a new medium I've been experimenting with: encaustic wax. Most of this work I am preparing for the Great Sheffield Show later in the year, but this is a great opportunity to get feedback from visitors. As those who've seen my paintings before will know, I really like textures that have an almost 3D look and feel to them. It was one of the things that drew me to work on coarse chipboard, and I am loving the layering, the depth, and the physical feel of this new material. If you've painted with it, you'll know how much fun it is - I hope the pieces I will be showing meet with your approval!
